By way of explanation, UH offer the following:
“In order to align employer costs for specialty medications with actual member out of pocket and deductibles, UnitedHealthcare is launching the Accumulator Adjustment Medical Benefit program. This program requires providers to submit patient information received from drug manufacturer copay coupon programs which are applied to a member’s cost share when billing for specialty medications as a medical benefit drug claim.”
That’s right, UH has the chutzpah to refer to this as a “medical benefit program." Talk about a large dose of Orwellian NewSpeak. Shame on UH for behaving like a 21st century Stasi.
